SDDOT Expands Snowplow Fleet

PIERRE, S.D. – The South Dakota Department of Transportation has expanded its snowplow fleet by adding three new tow-plows for the 2017-2018 winter season.

 

The new plows will be used to clear roadways in Yankton, Rapid City and Hot Springs. The first tow-plow was deployed last year in Sioux Falls with great success, according to SDDOT Secretary Darin Bergquist.

 

A tow-plow is pulled by a snowplow truck and, along with the front plow on the truck, can clear widths up to 25 feet by allowing the operator to remove snow from one lane and the shoulder in one pass.

 

“The tow plow has been proven to save wear and tear on equipment, and save on fuel and labor costs. It also allows crews to get the roadway cleared more quickly and efficiently,” Bergquist said.

 

When the driver deploys the bi-directional tow plow, the wheels turn as much as 30 degrees in either direction, which causes the tow-plow to steer to the right or left of the truck. The tow plow works similarly to a wing plow but with a much greater reach to clear more surface area.

 

The department’s tow plows will have different set-ups for material that can be used to more effectively treat road surfaces. The two different set-ups the SDDOT will be using can apply a direct liquid spray or a pre-wetting salt application.

Schaefer selected as 2018 South Dakota Teacher of the Year

PIERRE, S.D. – Rachel Schaefer, a kindergarten teacher at Elkton Elementary School, has been named the 2018 South Dakota Teacher of the Year. The announcement was made this evening at a banquet at the Best Western Ramkota in Rapid City.

“The Teacher of the Year award is all about celebrating teaching,” said Secretary of Education Dr. Melody Schopp. “Rachel has received this honor not only because of her great work in the kindergarten classroom but also because she is a strong advocate for the profession as a whole.”

Schaefer has taught in the Elkton School District since 2015. She has also worked at the Boys & Girls Club of Brookings, where she served as an administrator and as a preschool/junior kindergarten teacher. Earlier in her career, at the Fishback Center for Early Childhood Education at South Dakota State University, she collaborated on a research project looking at the influence materials have on children’s learning. This research was published as her master’s thesis and later adapted into an article for Young Children magazine.

A statewide panel of educators selected Schaefer from among six regional finalists. The other finalists were Cara Biegler, science, Timber Lake Middle School; Caitlin Bordeaux, computer science, and multimedia, St. Francis Indian High School; Jennifer Mudder, fifth grade, Tyndall Elementary; Jeremy Risty, social studies, Brandon Valley High School; and Jessica Zwaschka, chemistry, Spearfish High School.

As recipient of the honor, Schaefer receives prizes including a $5,000 cash award from the West River Foundation and a $1,000 honorarium from the South Dakota Board of Regents to present a series of professional development seminars to aspiring teachers. Prize packages are made possible through the generosity of private businesses and organizations, including Amplify, Inner Explorer, SMART, the South Dakota Retailers Association and the South Dakota Education Association.

In addition, Schaefer will represent South Dakota as a candidate for the National Teacher of the Year award. The National Teacher of the Year Program began in 1952 and continues as the oldest, most prestigious national honors program that focuses public attention on excellence in teaching. The 2018 National Teacher of the Year will be announced during a ceremony in Washington, D.C., in the spring.

Highway Patrol Graduation Friday; Largest Group in 43 years

PIERRE, S.D. – South Dakota’s Highway Patrol officially welcomes its largest group of new troopers to the agency in more than 40 years this Friday during a graduation ceremony held in the State Capitol Rotunda in Pierre.

 

Class 59 consists of 20 recruits — 15 men and five women. It is the Highway Patrol’s largest class since 25 recruits graduated in 1974.

 

“This is a good group of recruits, who come from many different backgrounds and perspectives,” says Col. Craig Price, superintendent of the South Dakota Highway Patrol. “Their different skill sets and life experiences will make the Patrol stronger and help us to better meet the needs of the public.”

 

The recruits have completed eight months of training which included basic law enforcement training, attending the South Dakota Highway Patrol Recruit Academy and finally, field training. The period from initial application to graduation is about one year.

 

“This has been an intense period of training, but these recruits need to be ready for any situation they might face,” says Price. “It has not been easy, but Friday’s graduation is the culmination of their hard work and dedication. We look forward to celebrating the moment with the recruits and their families.”

 

The graduating recruits and their duty stations are: Jeremy Biegert, Belle Fourche; Zach Bruzelius, Pierre; Andrew Buns, Wall; Joshua De Wild, Chamberlain; Paige Erickson, Rapid City; Brian Gordon, Murdo; Ashley Granville, Pierre; Tyler Jackson, Rapid City; Shane Johnson, Mitchell; Peter Klein, Belle Fourche; Jordan Melius, Aberdeen; Devin Olson, Britton; Eric Peterson, Beresford; Brandon Ridgeway, Brookings; Brynne Rist, Platte; Maxwell Schrader, Spearfish; Sara Schumacher, Pierre; Jared Smith, Gettysburg; Daniel Woodring, Rapid City; and Tyler Woodside, Faith.

 

Gov. Dennis Daugaard is the guest speaker for the ceremony, which starts at 10 a.m.  At the end of graduation, the new troopers will receive their patrol cars which will be parked behind the state Capitol. Many of the graduates are scheduled to be on duty as early as Saturday, July 22.

 

The public is invited to attend the ceremony.

 

South Dakota’s Highway Patrol is part of the South Dakota Department of Public Safety.

Third Annual TEDx Rapid City Conference

TEDx Rapid City is back for its third year on Wednesday, June 28th. The theme for this year’s offering is ‘Connected, ’ and the all-day event will be held at the Performing Arts Center in downtown Rapid.

‘TED’ stands for Technology Entertainment and Design and the annual TED conferences began in 1984 as a nonprofit symposium, devoted to spreading ideas in the form of short but powerful talks. Each TED Talk runs 18 minutes or less and covers pretty much every topic you can think of, from global issues to business innovation to scientific hypotheses.

TED presents itself as a global community, which practices the power of ideas and how they can be understood and implemented. Every year the TED conference brings together the best and brightest and most interesting and thoughtful speakers from all over the word. Past TED speakers have included author Brene Brown, illusionist David Blaine, former President Bill Clinton, Microsoft CEO Bill Gates, physicist Stephen Hawking and former White House intern Monica Lewinsky. The talks are intended to foster understanding and spark conversations.

In addition to the annual TED conference, there are also thousands of independently-produced TEDx events all over the world each year. A team of folks from Rapid City worked hard and successfully brought TEDx to our region first in June 2015.
The theme for that first event was ‘Re-Imagine Innovation, ” and this writer was honored to serve on the planning committee as the Co-Director of Media and Communications. In that capacity, I helped oversee all social media for the event, including the day of and also helped select the (nine) chosen speakers.

We hosted the first event at the Dahl Arts Center in downtown Rapid City with a kick-off reception for our speakers at the School of Mines and Technology. Each speaker was recorded, and their TEDx Talks were uploaded later that summer to Youtube.
Talks that the first year ranged from issues of Women in Business to the Federal Budget, from nuclear fission to the Thunder Valley Community Development Center at Pine Ridge. It was a great kick-off event, and very well received.

When TEDx Rapid City 2016 was announced, I submitted a proposal for a Talk and, a few weeks later, was accepted. It was a thrill of a lifetime, writing and preparing my Talk (about the power of stories). That year TEDx provided each speaker with a Dale Carnegie-trained coach, Michael Howard, to help us develop our presentations and hone our speaking skills.

Our theme last year was ‘Moments of Impact, ’ and through my coach, I was able to adjust my talk around the tipping point of my talk. Michael also helped me understand the power of the beginning of a story and I had completely reworked the introduction.

My biggest challenge was learning to memorize my talk! Even when you’ve written your own dialogue, and it’s something particularly meaningful to you, the human brain isn’t always meant to retain a script, word for word. I researched several ideas to help learn how to memorize, but I ultimately found that the best way was walking and talking.

Each evening I would go for a 45-minute walk around my neighborhood. It was late May, early June and temperatures were comfortable. As I walked down my street and up the next, I just talked. Out loud! I didn’t care if anyone around me could hear me (or what they might think). I just began at the beginning and continued my presentation as well as I could remember. The first few days, I forgot whole paragraphs, and when I returned from my walk, I would look back over my script and see what had been missed.
But after a week I only forgot sentences. And after another week, only one or two of them at best. By the end, I remembered everything.
And then the big day arrived. Needless to say, I had told every person I had ever met in my life that I was giving a TEDx Talk. I knew a few people who were going to be in the audience, including those I had served with on the TEDx Rapid City committee the previous year.

It turns out that I was the next-to-last speaker that day. I was able to sit and relax during the first half of the day, enjoying conversation with my fellow speakers and making new connections.

Last year’s speakers included talks on fetal alcohol syndrome, on the use of STEM in the Lakota community, on suicide prevention and on the dark sky movement to improve light pollution. There was also a fellow writer among the speakers, and our two Talks proved to be complimentary bookends to each other.

As it got close to my time to speak, I did develop a case of the jitters. It seems like the longer it took to make it onto the stage, the more those butterflies in my stomach began to expand! But all it took was stepping out onto the stage, looking into the audience and beginning my talk, to make those butterflies slow their roll.

I was proud and honored to speak about something that I am so passionate about – building connections through sharing our personal stories – and I especially enjoyed meeting and getting to know the other speakers who took the stage before and after me.
This year I’ll be attending the TEDx Rapid City conference again but as a volunteer. I’ll be helping navigate the experience for the attendees this year, on Wednesday, June 28th. This year we’re at the Performing Arts Center (a larger space than the Dahl) and will conclude with a reception at the new Hay Camp location just up the street.

I know one of the speakers at this year’s conference, which will include a few more Talks than last year. I know many TED Talkers go on to careers as public speakers, but for this gal, it just meant everything to give that one talk that wasn’t just what I know but what I believe. My Talk was exactly the topic that I was hoping would spark conversation. I’m looking forward to seeing what this year’s crop of great TED Talkers will be giving here in Rapid City and will post an update, after the event!

Coming Full Circle with Naomi Even-Aberle

I have long been curious about a fellow Rapid City woman that I see making a real difference in our community. I first met Naomi Even-Aberle in 2015, through the Arts Legacy Project (she was an artist, and I was a featured storyteller, and then the following year she was a featured storyteller). Naomi is the founder of Full Circle Martial Arts Academy, and recently she and I sat down to chat about the future of her studio, martial arts programs here in the Black Hills and some exciting news that she wanted to share.
Master Naomi Even-Aberle is the Master Instructor/Examiner for Full Circle Martial Arts Academy in Rapid City. She is a Kukkiwon-certified 4th Dan Master Black Belt in Taekwondo, a Cchung Ryoung Hapkido Federation 4th Dan Master degree Black Belt, and a red belt in Kumdo/Kumpub. She began her martial arts career in 2006 under the direction of 5th Degree Master Instructor Nathan Schultz. Master Naomi Even-Aberle (along with her husband Nikolas Aberle) do all they can to build confident, well-rounded students. Master Naomi Even-Aberle has traveled to Seoul, South Korea in 2009, 2010 and 2012 for specialized training under the direction of Great Grand Master Moo Young Yun. Both Master Naomi Even-Aberle and Nikolas Aberle continue to regularly train and participate with the Greenquist Academy Taekwondo Association, under 5th Dan Master Nathan Schultz and within the United States Chang Moo Kwon Taekwondo Union.
We met at Pure Bean in the East of Fifth neighborhood in Rapid. Naomi told me about her big news first: she was recently awarded a National Art Strategies Community Creative Fellowship, which will provide a launching pad to expand her martial arts and community outreach program. The Bush Foundation is one of several partners in this Fellowship and, as Naomi explained, she will have a chance to learn and connect and develop her leadership skills thanks to this award.
Naomi explained, “Twenty-four individuals are selected. We’ll go to Vermont in August for ten days, and each be paired with a mentor – someone that maybe has an alignment with your project. Then you work on your marketing. They help groom you. You work peer to peer with lots of other people, and then you come back and do learning modules throughout the rest of the year. Then, in February 2018, we’ll go to Washington D.C., and the National Arts Strategies Board provides a panel of entrepreneurs, funders, donors, grant specialists that you present your pitch to.”
Naomi will be using her Full Circle Martial Arts Curriculum in this endeavor, which she created. This will provide a springboard to integrate her martial arts program with other organizations to provide martial arts training to more people here in the Black Hills, helping to build self-confidence, mutual respect and physical fitness awareness for children and others. This summer, they’ll be working with Atayape (a mentoring program for kids in 4th-12th grades, established by the Rural American Initiatives and taught by Lakota adults, designed to promote a drug- and alcohol-free life). “We’re having them come to our gym, and we’re doing a one-hour martial arts class for all four of their groups. At the end of the program, they’ll test for their white belt. We’ll have the students break the board, with all of their support system around. Our students will provide a potluck for their extended families, and even Atayape’s staff will be testing and learning with their students. So you have teacher-to-student relationships being built.”
The Fellowship will open up avenues for funding and support. Previously, Full Circle had a traveling program in Kyle, South Dakota, which had been paid for through Indian Health Services’ Suicide Prevention Program. Unfortunately, when their liaison to the program left, the classes stalled. As Naomi told me, “I can’t afford to go on my own, and those kids need a martial arts program. I want to help support additional growth (into that community) either through a grant, or supplies or potential networking and connections.”
As to how the fellowship will help grow her leadership skills Naomi explains that it will “help with branding and messaging.” She wants to be able to share the message of Full Circle in ways that will make sense to those not already versed in the terminology of martial arts. She also wants to create mixed programs throughout western South Dakota, with martial arts and music, martial arts and dance, etc. But Naomi is not just listening to her own heart – she’s paying attention to what we are asking for here in Rapid City and the Black Hills. “I really want to be a community-driven business. We’re providing community-centered programming that hopefully helps build a stronger foundation for the students. I’m open to lots of ideas. I want to make the martial arts accessible, not just financially, but also travel-wise. If there’s a way that we can eventually purchase a van, to go into communities or we can drive and pick kids up. Building a community through practice helps us feel connected.”
Her first steps, once she is completed with the training made available to her through the Fellowship, is to re-look at her structure and organization. She wants the messaging to be clear, engaging and authentic. She also will be looking at funding in new ways. “One of the challenges I face is that I can’t just hire teachers. They first have to be students and train under someone. It’s a huge mentorship program. It takes a year to three years for someone to reach black belt, and I don’t allow someone to teach until they’re black belt. It’s a quality issue, and I’m one of the only ones in the area who can offer that. I want to pay our artists what they’re worth. I’m constantly looking for organizations that can support our programming. There might be a grant that we can write together or separately, that pays for operations. There’s a lot of people who do funding.” One of the ways that Naomi sees that organizations can help support martial arts here is through scholarship programs. She also wants to create more outreach, from Full Circle, into the community. “We might volunteer at the Hope Center or at the Humane Society. It starts by building connections.”
The Fellowship will connect Naomi and Full Circle Martial Arts Academy with writers, actors, artists and entrepreneurs throughout the nation. That kind of feedback will help inform her branding and messaging of Full Circle and also her leadership abilities. “I’m hoping the messaging makes sense, it’s engaging and authentic and allows me to find ways to continue to morph but also to adjust that message to fit what our community needs. Like Atayape, which is a non-profit.”
Naomi will also be looking at expanding the qualifications at Full Circle, including partnering with the fire department for CPR certification classes. She hopes that citizens of our area will learn that martial arts are not just about fitness, but something more.
“There’s a limited perspective of what martial arts can do. Yes, we are a gym, but we also talk about life. We’re still a young organization. We’ve been running classes for just barely three years. We’re looking for feedback. I know that martial arts isn’t for everyone, but we’re looking to connect with other people in a way that drama or football or something else might not. This is a safe space to everybody. To connect to kids that aren’t very confident, shy or uncoordinated kids, or those that are bullied. Martial Arts is an amazing place to build confidence, build physical balance and coordination, and put those kids on the same level as other students. It helps them to believe in their own power and their own right to take up space.”
Needless to say, that includes the involvement of more girls and women in Martial Arts. “When we’re able to help women to feel strong enough in their body to do that, they help other women to do that. In South Dakota, that’s really important. Women are fifty percent of our population but highly underrepresented in many fields. Martial Arts has been a masculine field, so having women step in helps challenge that traditional status quo. If we don’t give women the opportunity to challenge and explore and think for themselves in roles that are traditionally male, it’s hard to ask them do so anywhere else. We’ve been working really hard to change our language in our classes, using pronouns appropriately and being more attentive to how we say things and what those things might mean. Now, we don’t go into classes and call out ‘feminist power’! It’s about ‘individual power.’ Every student has the right to stand up for themselves and to advocate for themselves. My students are two years old up to sixty-seven, and they tell me when something isn’t working for them. It’s asking them to be accountable for their own learning.”
Clearly, Naomi is an ambitious and enthusiastic advocate for Martial Arts and for the Black Hills community of artists, entrepreneurs, kids, and families. If you know someone interested in training in martial arts or you’d like to learn more about Naomi Even-Aberle and the Full Circle Martial Arts Academy, please check out their website at http://www.fullcirclemaa.com/.
